I agree, I think that the situation wasn’t really about the color of his skin, and more about him not obeying the police officer’s wishes. I don’t think that the police officer should of ended someone’s life just because she thought he was dangerous.

You bring up a very good point about how that tasering him was enough to gain control of the situation, and shooting him was never necessary. They never should have ended someone’s life because they felt like he was under the influence and armed. I think they should of checked to make sure what really was happening before they chose to make such drastic decisions.

But again, I don’t think this situation occurred because of the color of his skin. I think the police officers were being inconsiderate of their choices, and because of them being inconsiderate, it has cost a man his life.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
